    1,DRINK to much
    2,Beeing selfish and talk only about himself.

  4. (I wasn't sure wether to post my answers to read & React here, but since Antigona and Albulena did it I'll do the same.)

    Read & React:
    1, Bridget's mother thinks of Mark as a succesful young man and would love it if her daughter got together with a guy like that.

    2, Bridget thinks that it is uncomfortable to be set up to meet Mark. And the fact that her mothers attempts at getting her will are so obvious aren't helping.

    3, Bridget thinks that Mark is snooty. And she didn't like his V-neck diamond pattern sweater in shades of yellow and blue, because that is what elderly sports reporters wear according to her.

    4, In my mind Bridget is still not comfortable with her mothers attempts at getting her together with Mark, so she doesn't want Mark to drive her home.

    Reflect & Share:
    "Dating no-no's":
    1, The date being more interested in other guys.
    2, Constantly talking about ex-boyfriends, as if she wasn't over them.
    3, Spending more time on fixing the hair or make-up than getting to know me.

  5. Read & React

    1. Because Mark is a successful young lawyer, comes from a rich family and just got divorced.

    2. Everyone makes it look like Bridget is desperate for a relationship which makes it all very uncomfortable for her. It does not help that her family and friends are all watching them.

    3. He was wearing a diamond patterned V-neck in shades of yellow and blue which, according to Bridget, made him look like an elderly.

    4. She declined, telling him she would be taking a train in the morning.

    Reflect & Share

    Dating no-no's:
    1. Awkward silences.
    2. Interrupting me 24/7.
    3. Having no sense of humor.

  6. I doubt that Read&React was supposed to be here.. so I won't post it here. Got the feeling that we would bring up the answers in class.
    Anyway, here's my no-no's:

    1. Silly clothing such as several different strong coloured cloth parts (jeans, t-shirts etc.) aswell as inappropriate clothing.
    2. Going to a Museum
    3. Shy girls ain't my thing either.

    I choose to comment Timmy's Dating No-no's list. And I must say that I agree with you on all parts. Narcissistic girls are lame, even though it's cool when they talk a bit about themselves.

  7. Read & React

    1. Briget is singel and her mum and her friend Una thinks that Mark would be the perfekt guy for her. He is rich and just divorced. Perfect! XP

    2. It was her mum that wanted Bridget to meet Mark so I think she felt a bit forced and it didn't help that she was surrounded with her parents friends.

    3. She doesn't like his clothes and she thinks that he is behaving snooty.

    4. She says no and explains to him that she was going to take the train in the morning.


    1. Compere your date to your ex, which you are clearly not over.
    2. Moving too fast, you shouldn't say I love you on the first date. It might scare your date.
    3. Talk about yourself all the time. You should listen to what she/he has to say also.

    3, Mark is very rich so Bridget thinks he is snooty. She also hated his V-neck diamond pattern sweater, that was to elderly according her.
